Work for BCTF is coming along. Can't believe there's less than a week to go! There's still so much to do. I've been busy recently organizing my cushions and finding somewhere I could get them made. The lovely Gill Sinclair from Sinclairs in Edinburgh made my first batch of them to take to the fair with me and I'm really happy with the results. Thanks Gill!

I've finally been able to start screen printing my calico for my cushions, having been delayed by a water leak in my studio! The printing process at home in such a small space is stressful to say the least, but I think I'm getting the hang of it so the next batch will be better. I'm printing on calico with permaset aqua textile ink and the cushions are being stuffed and stitched together with various patterned backing fabrics.

I've been making gift tags for the fair. These were made by combining 18th century illustrations by Thomas Bewick with modern graphic fonts. They have a to: and from: on the back as well. I'm really happy with them but don't know what to price them at. Is 50p too cheap or too expensive? I dunno!

These are photos of two greeting cards I made recently. The top card is done with a custom rubber stamp of my wren drawing. I had the stamp made at english stamp company. The bottom card is my drawing of a scops owl, I also printed an address box on the front of the envelope.
